I agree with the fact that kids these days are more concerned with the latest video game release than they are with the newest bow release. I think it is also that kids are not being taught hunting because their dad may have used to hunt but quit many years ago. I wish I had a dollar for all the avid hunters I used to know that just won't get out of bed to go hunting anymore.
They are the same ones that are calling me now to see if I can take their grandson hunting. Which I am glad to do but it is not the same as when I was a kid when me and my brothers couldn't sleep at night thinking about opening day. We would plan for six months for a week long trip on the mountain.
I think loss of hunting grounds has a lot to do with it to. When I was old enough to take a shotgun hunting me and my buddies would just leave out the door and if the nieghbors saw us out in their fields or in their woods hunting they wouldn't care. We didn't have to ask, we just had to close the gates behind us.
It's a different world today.
If your to busy to go hunting, your just to busy.
